A Theory Regarding the Theory Sale—It’s Meh

This Theory sale was so average that it’s hard for me to find a word to describe it. When I heard that Theory was offering items up to 70% off I was intrigued, but when I got to the sale I thought the prices were too high and the items too boring for me to justify it. Items available at the sale were shirts, sweaters, dresses, jackets (both men’s and women’s), scarves, and hats (and a few pairs of shoes).

Although this sale was kind of underwhelming, I will give props to how well-organized it was. With a wide variety of styles and sizes, everything was hung up neatly on hangers. Men’s on one side, women’s on the other. (260, take note) One thing that I really liked about the room (OCD, much?) was that items and racks were separated by category and price (ie women’s sweaters for $109, men’s outerwear for $299)— this made everything easy to navigate.

The pieces were mostly solid colors and veered on the side of dressy(ish)— in short, if you’re going on an interview, hit this up. 

While the prices were notably discounted, for a sample sale they weren’t that great. 

I give this sale a 6/10. The pieces were nice but pretty expensive. This sale would definitely appeal to someone who is a big Theory fan. If you don’t have any particular fondness for the brand, though, it’s just slightly above “okay”.

Lots of Merchandise for Good Prices at the Theory and Helmut Lang Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The Theory and Helmut Lang Sample Sale has a lot to offer in terms of clothes and shoes! There was definitely more Theory merchandise than Helmut Lang but there was still a good amount to make the trip worth it. Theory ranged from $50-$155 while Helmut Lang ranged from $60-$155. They had a variety of clothes including tees, bottoms and outerwear and a lot of sizes available. Tees were around $50-$60 while dresses were $70-$80. Suede and leather pieces for both brands were the same price, ranging from $109-$199 and $399 for fur.

They both had a lot of shoes available, but Theory had a larger selection. For Theory,  shoes and sandals were $60 while boots were $95, and for Helmut Lang, $100 for shoes, sandals and sneakers and and $145 for boots. They had a lot of sizes, ranging from 35-41.

Overall, I gave this sale a 7/10. A lot available in a lot of different sizes and decent discounts.

Good Discounts at the Theory Sample

By: Riva Neumann 

Theory Sample Sale is the place to go for some hefty discounts. Held in Chelsea Market, the sale advertised savings up to 70% off. If you are a fan, I would head on over ASAP. The sale was super organized and everything was easy to find. The trousers they had were only $99 (a STEAL) and blazers for $169. Skirts were also $99 and denim was $69. Leather was all $399 and they had some really good pieces. They also had a lot of size variety in clothes which I loved.

The shoes I found to be meh and not super exciting. All were $109 besides boots being $139 and Soludos being $29. They had some sizes available but not a whole lot. Bags were $119 for a basic leather bag which is pretty good.

Overall, I gave the sale a 7/10, was a pretty good sale and if you love the brand you will for sure walk away with some good deals.

Theory and Helmut Lang Sample Sale – Reductions on the Last Day

theory and helmut lang sample sale ny spring 2019

The Theory and Helmut Lang at Clothingline was a solid 6 out of 10. The brands are relatively popular. We’re happy to have them hanging in our closets, but no one ever died for those brands either.

The racks are filled with merchandise, a lot of it is relatively recent merchandise (and not items from some warehouse from 30 years ago), and the prices reflect that as well. In comparison to retail, the prices are a good 70% off, but you still have to shell out $155 for a coat and $65 for a sweater.

Since the sale is at Clothingline, reductions take place as well. Thursday prices drop 25%, and we bet that by Friday, prices will drop another 15%-25%. If you’re looking for staple items to fill your wardrobe, don’t miss this one. As always, detailed photos (and pricing) below.

A Theory Sale We Finally Approve: The Theory x Helmut Lang Sample Sale

Theory x Helmut Lang Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Theory has been having sales left and right the past six months. I guess it took them leaving 260 Sample Sales to finally becoming a decent  sale. This time Theory partnered up with Helmut Lang and found a new home at Clothing Line. We are finally seeing actual sample sale prices at this Theory x Helmut Lang sample sale. Discounts were between 40% – 80% off. Traditionally at Theory sales, prices are still through the roof. All shoes were usually over $100, but this time the most expensive shoe was $75.

The selection was excellent! They even had a small men’s section. Although Clothing Line’s space is a little dingy, you definitely have space to shop comfortably. There is enough stock for both summer and winter shopping. Even though you don’t want to think about coats in the middle of July, it doesn’t hurt to grab one now at these prices. Unfortunately, the Theory x Helmut Lang sample sale is a few day, it’s deff worth checking out. Let us know what you think. Happy shopping!

Shirts Coats & Shoes at the THEORY Sample Sale for Men

The Theory Sample Sale for Men received a 5 out of 10. While the merchandise was fresh-looking and plentiful, prices were barely 60% off retail. Most pants still cost $99, coats $299, and shoes $169. Compared to the Hugo Boss sample sale, where you could find shoes for $100, this is an expensive alternative. If you are used to buying Theory at full-price then this sale is perfect for you.

Update Your Work Wardrobe at the Theory Sample Sale for Women

Theory Sample Sale

By Cristina Martin 

The Theory sample sale had some really great pieces. Theory is well known for their stylish power suits and minimalist approach to professional attire. You can find both professional and casual pieces at the Theory sample sale. Their accessories were on point as well! You can choose from a wide variety of handbags, scarves, hats, and belts. However, their shoe selection was rather limited.

Now prices… We rated the Theory sample sale a 7 out of 10, because all although their selection was excellent, the prices were still a little high. You had to sift through the clothing to get a really good deal. For example, these suede pants were originally $1,195 and were on sale for $99. Now that’s a gem! On the other hand, a leather jacket was $445 and on sale for $399. We are keeping our fingers crossed for further price reductions!
